Photoshop Addiction

What's the quickest and painless way to get a perfect look? not to the doctors, but to visit the Photoshopers.... people like Glenn Feron's work (see below) to be fascinating few years ago with all the amazing transformation images of the celebrities, then, the site got shot down for awhile, maybe the celebritiesaren't happy about their "before" and "after". They want you to believe who they are not.

We all know our society has this photoshop "addition". All the flawless models with perfect skins and perfect bodies, the seemly ageless celebrities, it is really just illusions that marketer created to trick us in believe the mother nature is not good enough, we need to constantly improve our self, not from inside out, but from outside in.... Can we just be who we are any more? 

Oh Karl....

So you say you love fashion, and don't know who Karl Lagerfeld is, then, you failed fashion 101.

Karl Lagerfeld is one of the most influential fashion designers in the fashion history,  he is the master creative mind  and the iconic figure for Channel, Chloé, Fendi just to name a few. "As an avid photographer, Lagerfeld often shoots his own press photos, and is sometimes called "Kaiser Karl" by the press. His personal trademarks include a fan, a long ponytail for his powdered-white hair, and sunglasses. He is a uniquely confident man and speaks German, French, English, and Italian" (Fashion.infomat) Karl Lagerfeld is an icon of fashion.
His passion for exclusive, sophisticated high-end couture doesn't prevent him from getting involved in a series of very interesting initiatives, and embraced the radical objet (New York Meg.)

one of these is - Karl enjoys modeling!

“It is so chic and pretty,” he said of the household appliance. “I would like to have one — not to wash clothes but to put in my dressing room to hold my dirty laundry.” (modeling for 3 Suisses)

"It's yellow, it's ugly, it doesn't match anything, but it can save your life." The effort is part of a French government safety campaign

Asian Fashion

I grew up in Asia, Shanghai to be specific, I love the fashion from Asia -  always fashion forward, stylish, unique, with a blend of Asian and European.   Every time I travel back home to Shanghai or Hong Kong, I so excited to shop till I drop - it is the shoppers paradise.... if you have not been to Asia, you really don't know fashion in a global sense.  So, I suggest you pack up and make it there, SOON.... cause Asia is the Future.a.a.a.a....! the biggest purchasing power ($$) is there (according to research).

Scissor Fashion

According to NY Magazin  

"Figure-enhancing slits in unexpected places made for curve-hugging styles and arty peekaboos". I always fond the "cut out" fashion  to be most sexy, whether it is on an evening gown, or a beachwear,très chic! très sexy since the master "scissor hand" fashion designer Versace's days.  only a bit of "peekaboo" to invite a great imagination - the power of seduction is laying in the unseen....
